FMG 6.0.3 Software Switch Issues

Experiencing issues in FMG 6.0.3 in which it does not appear possible to make changes to software switch interfaces. The software switch interface appears in the Interfaces list however does not show the member interfaces although the GUI has a field for it (the member interfaces successfully show in the software switch CLI section elsewhere). Upon making any change to the interface, such as IP address of DHCP options, the OK button does nothing then becomes disabled. No change is made and no error prompted.


Anyone else with this issue?


FortiManager's handling of software switch interface (ability to edit interface membership) is not fully fixed until the upcoming FortiManager 6.0.4 (estimated release: end of this week)


Bug for which a fix is already checked in for 6.0.4 release: Bug id 526932 Can't make changes to hardware or software switch interfaces

I was able to workaround this issue by editing the neccessary settings using the CLI menu and navigating to the system interface detail from there followed by a device push.
